Ace Hardware Corp. will open a new Retail Support Center (RSC) in Visalia, Ca., to occupy more than 1 million sq. ft. and serve more than 300 Ace-affiliated stores in multiple western states.
Centrally located between Sacramento and Los Angeles, the new facility will augment the company’s Rocklin, Ca., and Prescott Valley, Az., distribution centers. Construction is scheduled to begin later this year; the distribution center will be fully operational in early 2023.
The Visalia RSC will feature new technology, a climate-controlled environment, improved automation to help streamline and enhance operations, and room to expand.
